DO I PLAY OUTSIDE OF CALGARY ?
Yes, I sure do, there would be an additional fee
CAN I PROVIDE MUSIC AND MICROPHONE FOR WEDDING CEREMONYS ?
Yes, I can have music of your choice playing for your guests as they wait for the ceremony to begin,
and have handheld wireless microphone for the person officiating you ceremony.
HOW MUCH TIME IS REQUIRED TO SET UP?
It really varies, depending on the setup for your event. It usually takes 2 hours to setup & 1 hour to take down.
DO I TAKE REQUESTS WHILE PERFORMING ?
I wouldn't have it any other way!, We will discuss the types and genres of music prior to your event and get a basic direction the music is going to go, but I love interacting with the audience and encourage requests, taking requests on the fly is a big part of why you & your guests will have great time!
WHAT TYPE OF DJ EXPERIENCE DOES DJ DAR HAVE ?
I have been a Disc Jockey for over 30 years. I have worked in AM & FM Radio, many of my 30 years were spent performing in night clubs & pubs in Calgary & Kelowna, I have done more than 500 wedding receptions and countless corporate Christmas parties and fundraising events.
WHAT MAKES DJ DAR UNIQUE AND DIFFERENT FROM OTHER DJ SERVICES ?
I do not contract out to other DJ's. I am the only DJ that normally will be performing at your event. In the case of a game of 'Crack The Track'. I will have an assistant, because the game takes 2 people to conduct.
HOW MUCH DO I CHARGE ?
Here is a general guideline on how I put together my pricing & what is included......
In person consultation / planning session prior to your event
4 hours of DJ performance time $750
A professional PA system suitable for up to 200 people
2 multi colored moving lighting effects
1 mirrorball with stand and pin spots
Additional time beyond the included 4 hours is $100 per hour
(here is an example of a complete event)
5pm - 7pm music for cocktails
7pm - 9 pm music for dinner
9pm - 1am party & dancing
(this example would be $1150)
(keep in mind this is a guideline, the price may be adjusted accordingly)
WHAT ARE THE TERMS OF PAYMENT ?
I require a non refundable security deposit to reserve your date, at which point I will provide you with an agreement between us outlining pricing and payment arrangements, and the general details of your event. The balance owing is to be paid by cash, e-transfer, or cheque no later than the conclusion of your event.
HOW DOES MY PRICING COMPARE ?
You will find that the service and entertainment value you will receive from me is very competitive and fair.
I have included a couple of non biased links for you to check out regarding DJ pricing in Canada.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I RESERVE A DATE ?
I would say the majority of the dates are booked a minimum of 9 months in advance, the most popular dates like long weekends usually get reserved first. Keep in mind I only book 1 event per day,
